    Cool Pre-Digital photo's only!!!

    Lets give this a try. No Digial need apply. Fire up that scanner and show some of your older bikes. I'll start off with a photo from April, 1976. Me sitting on my 1972 Suzuki GT-750cc, 2-cycle. What a great bike. Watercooled 3 years ahead of the first Goldwing. Wing-a-ding-ding. What was I thinking with that hair???

    The thing about traveling is, you never want it to end and you can't wait to get home.

    Me, my first wife, and a 66 Shovel on our wedding day. I bought the Shovel off a Schriner the day before. No longer have the either, though I miss the Shovel.

    My buddy and I after a trip to Nova Scotia in August 1978. What would we have done without milk crates on the back of our bikes back then.

    R11RS94, I remember those Suzukis. I think there was also a 550 triple version of your bike. Didn't they go by the nickname "Water Buffalo"? They were supposed to be very quick.

    The 550 was water cooled along with a 380, all were triple two strokes. Yes, water buffalo was their nick name, '72 was the first year and had the "Buck Rodgers" exhaust pipe ends. Along with the teal, there was a purple color. Both pretty unappealing IMHO.

    They were powerful, but heavy. stock they would run with the Honda 750's of the day, but the H-2 Kawi's were the king of the hill as far as speed, but were miserable to ride. The Suzuki did many a mile as a touring bike, with windjammer and saddle bags.
